This rule has not been adopted by the USA or Canada.The European Union applies the Rule of the Shorter Term for works whose country of origin is outside the EU.All works published 1964-1977 have been renewed automatically and enjoy a full term of 95 years after first publication provided notice and eligibility requirements were met.Works published 1978 and later are under copyright for life-plus-70, though notice and eligibility requirements remained in limited form until 1989.) **Canada considers any "performance, recording, or delivery" as the equivalent of publication for works of authors who died between 19.The 93/98/EC Copyright Directive, consolidated in the 2006/11/EC Directive, harmonized copyright terms for EU countries at life-plus-70 years.It also restored copyright status for works which had entered the public domain in member countries with life-plus-50 terms at the time.Some groups will re-print public domain editions with no new editing and write "copyright 20XX" even though the work does not qualify for copyright protection.
